Obama tugs George W’s pigtails, gets a boner

When you consider that Obama is basically George Bush on steroids and children’s tylenol, it makes it even weirder when Obama continually blames Bush for all of his problems.  It’s starting to seem as if his criticisms are more the “pigtail tugging” variety.

The Obama administration has now decided to hold Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s trial at Guantanamo (which is still open).  I believe, and had it confirmed by google, that it was Dick Cheney who said, “I think the president will find, upon reflection, that to bring the worst of the worst terrorists inside the United States would be cause for great danger and regret in the years to come.”

So every problem Obama is facing is Bush’s fault, yet Obama has also come to agree with Bush on the following things (and probably much, much more):

1.  The Bush tax rates.  Obama extended them when one of his platforms was to raise taxes on the rich.  And isn’t funny how the jobs market began to turn around at the exact same time people knew what the tax rates were going to be.  It would be a pretty huge coincidence if this decision had nothing to do with the timing of the jobs market.  However, Richard Dreyfuss’s nerdier little brother (Paul Krugman) chortles at such a “myth” as tax and regulatory uncertainty hurting the economy.  (here – about 4 minutes in – also notice that Krugman gets twice as much time to talk as George Will, which is like sitting Larry Bird on the bench in lieu of Danny Devito)

2.  Guantanamo Bay – already discussed.

3.  Iraq – He has kept the exact same policies and timeline as Bush.

4. Afghanistan – He even used Bush’s “surge” tactic to try to turn the Afghanistan War around.

5. Spending – He’s such a big fan of Bush’s deficit spending idea that he tripled it.

Obama is like a french kid wearing a Bo Jackson jersey, listening to Taylor Swift on his ipod, eating a Big Mac at a Wal-Mart and frothing at the mouth screaming about how much America sucks.

For someone who has been so in-step with Bush, he reeeeaaaaally seems to hate the guy.
